Giani Granite Review and Giveaway. Slab Granite look without the Hefty Price

Congratulations to Sara for wining the Giani Granite Giveaway. I’d love to know what you think.

I hate the counter tops in my home. It is not so much that the actual material bothers me, although I would love granite, it is the color. They are just ugly. So when I learned about Giani Granite, I was intrigued.

Giani is a long lasting, heat resistant, indoor/outdoor paint that you use on any surface you want to give the look of granite to. Giani can be used on everything from wood, drywall, table tops, mantels, formica, laminate, marble and already existing granite. The steps are so easy to follow and in no time will turn your surfaces into a beautiful work of granite art.

I could go on and on about how much I am in love with Giani Granite. But instead, I will show you why I love it. We started on the counter top in the guest bathroom. This entire process will take you a weekend as you have to allow drying time in between steps. However, the actual application time is very small. Take a look at the ugly counters that I was dying to replace.

I cleaned the counter top and then taped it off. First step is the primer. I admit I am not sure what I thought the color would be but when I saw the black primer going on, I was getting a little nervous.

Primed.

I went with the chocolate brown color and what I love about it is that you can vary the amount of the colors you use to give each room its own personal tone. You can get multiple looks out of this one kit.

Next step is a 3 part step. Working in small sections you sponge on the 3 different paint colors. This is where you can get creative. Want a lighter look, just use more of the lighter colored paint. Want a darker look, use more of the darker colored paint.

You finally finish it all up with the clear sealer. The sealer is a semi gloss so your counter top will have the same shine as real slab granite.


Once everything is dry, remove your tape, re-caulk around the sink if needed and enjoy. The pictures really do not do it justice. But I promise you the color is incredible. Using a 3 part color system with a black primer gives the counter such warmth and depth. This bathroom has become one of my favorite rooms in the house.
